In case you have been living under a rock or somewhere in the jungle of Borneo, Jamie Oliver might sound alien to you. In summary, he is a British Celebrity Chef, author of numerous cook books, plus TV shows, activist who loved Italian Food. Jamie's restaurants always focused on natural and healthy ingredients, with simple cooking method. Jamie's Italian at Forum is the second franchise in Singapore.

While waiting for the everyone to arrive, LD and I ordered Salumi Crostini ($15). Salumi means different type of salami / Italian cured meat. Crispy bread with buffalo ricotta, crispy salumi and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Crispy, creamy, sweet, with subtle acidity just make a perfect entrée. A good start to tease the palate.

If you are an olive fan, you might want to try their World's Best Olive ($8.50). Consist of large green olives, with black olives and sun-dried tomatoes tapenade & crispy music bread. I am definitely not a fan of black olive, but I discover green olive is easy to like. Crunchy, refreshing with a touch of delicate sourness almost like a gherkin.

Since we have a big group, we ordered plenty. Prosciutto & Pear Salad ($25.50). A simple combination of prosciutto and pear, with pecorino, rocket salad, balsamic and toasted pine nuts. It is definitely refreshing, I personally like the combo of salty prosciutto with natural sweetness of the pear. The pecorino, rocket and balsamic just enhanced the flavour in the dish further while the pine nuts give the dish its crunchy texture.

Gennaro's Italian Sausage Pizza ($27.50). Bianco base (white pizza) with fennel sausage, balsamic onions, black olives and rosemary. Interesting white base pizza, with unique flavour arising from sweet balsamic onions and black olives. The dough is crisp and chewy, like a sour dough. However, I feel it lacked some creaminess from the cheese component.

Ravioli Con Carne ($26.50). Beef ragu-stuffed pasta with sage brown butter, crispy pancetta, lemon & parmesan. It is a good dish, with al-dente pasta sheets filled with ragu beef. The sage brown butter gave the dish a rich flavour however, it is missing the OMPH factors. It can do with more sprinkle of salt.

280g Rib-eye Steak ($46) served with grilled portobello mushrooms, gremolata, funky chips and balsamic onions. We asked them to cook to medium rare, however we still find the steak slightly chewy, lacked richness and marbling of ribeye steak. Surprisingly, the grilled portobello was the best ingredients to the dish. Definitely, has lots of room for improvement.

Lamb Rack ($88). Lamb rack coated with herby breadcrumb served with roasted mixed root vegetables and a yummy red wine sauce. Easily the best dish of the night. Cooked to medium rare, the meat just melts in your mouth. Absent of gamy flavour, the lamb is just to die for.  It is not in the main menu, so you must keep a look out on the special board. A must order dish here.

Service is friendly, accommodating and professional. The décor of the restaurant is modern, casual with a combination of open concept. The set-up and service are definitely geared towards child-friendly environment, where you and your family can dine freely. The semi open concepts will allow you to see the chefs preparing your food, maybe pique the interest of the young ones in cooking.

Please note that due to Jamie's focus on healthy eating, you might find the kids meal a bit bland. Feel free to add more seasoning to your child likings (cheese, salt or pepper). 

Overall, An evening in Jamie is definitely an interesting experience. It was packed during the dinner service. The food is simple yet delicious, but don't expect a high-end Italian restaurant version. We'll definitely return for the lamb rack. Cheers!!

I've never really taken to Jamie Oliver's brand of amateurish homecooking, even if I can see how his crooked grin and adorable lisp makes him so endearing to his female fans. But when I dine at a restaurant, I expect restaurant-quality fare, not food that I can recreate in my own kitchen. With the exception of the pizzas, which passed muster, the rest of our samplings were clumsy and unpolished. Suffice it to say, I was plainly unimpressed. There are dozens of Italian restaurants in Singapore more worthwhile than Jamie's Italian.
We had:
1) Cauliflower Fritti ($13.50): This was very good, a beautifully golden crust batter and juicy minced cauliflower balls. Ask to hold off the parsley if you're averse, Jamie's Italian puts it on EVERYTHING.
2) Prawn Linguine ($18): The sauce, redolent of garlic, shaved fennel, tomatoes, and chilli, was decent enough, and so were the properly cooked fresh prawns, BUT, the pasta was disappointingly overcooked.
3) Pizza Funghi ($23.50): the pizzas here are much better than their middling pastas. I liked the contrast of the earthy mushrooms with the richness of the white sauce
4) Epic Brownie ($12.50): nice but certainly not "epic" as asserted on the menu, even if it was very nicely fudgy

We started with some antipasti and sides. The Crispy Stuffed Risotto Balls (SGD$11.50) was a perfect crackling sphere on the exterior, filled with crab risotto within as the name implies - flavour was not strong but one could detect the sweetness of the crab-infused risotto bits.

Then we had the Chicken Liver Pâté Bruschetta, made with Vin Santo and garnished with pancetta.one of the recommended items. The bruschetta was utterly crispy; topped with good chicken liver pâté that boosted of a rich, creamy flavour in its satiny texture. It was tempting to order a second helping for this.

Following that, we had the Penne Carbonara (SGD$23.50), consisting of smoked pancetta, sweet buttery leeks, lemon and traditional Carbonara sauce. The pasta was creamy but not overwhelming, boosting of a delightful flavour to it; the penne was taut but not hard, making it delicious to chew on. It was one of the best Carbonara dishes I have eaten, and usually I don't even like Carbonara.

We moved on to desserts next. The Tiramisu (SGD$12.50) was served on a red pan that did not look very appetising, truth be knownst. But oh my, the moment we slipped one bite into the mouth, the intensity filled us like a reverie; the cake was moist, sapid in the coffee and amaretto flavours, and it just blew our minds literally, making this another brilliant choice made by us.
